Hershey Kiss Wreath

By  | 

I have another wreath for you today only this one is edible. It's chocolate, too, and I don't see how anyone can top a chocolate wreath.  Even though it is edible, you can hang it on a door or wall as a decoration. I don't, however, think I would hang it on an outside door or it might just slowly disappear when your door is closed.

Here is what you will need to get started:

  • A 12 inch styrofoam wreath
  • 2 large bags of Hershey kisses (in Christmas color wrap, if possible)
  • 1 Roll of aluminum foil
  • A low heat glue gun
  • A medium sized red bow
  • <Red satin ribbon to use as a hanger

Take the 12 inch styrofoam wreath and wrap it with aluminum foil. Make sure to cover the entire wreath, it is not recommended to have food, of any type, touch the bare styrofoam. Wrap the foil around the wreath tightly so that it stays in place.

Place a small amount of glue on the foil that you have wrapped around the wreath and one by one glue the kisses on the wreath. Make sure to put a kiss everywhere you see the foil to make the wreath look full.

Let it sit and dry. When dry, take your bow (they usually have wire attached to the middle for attaching) and tie it around the wreath at the bottom. If you don't have enough wire to attach it, use some floral wire to lengthen the wire on the bow.

Now, take the satin ribbon. Cut the ribbon about 10 inches to make sure you have enough. Put the ribbon around the top of the wreath, front to back. Try to work it between the kisses even if it doesn't look straight it will hang straight.
